"The Cambodian people have a thirst for truth, justice and reconciliation, with the full support of the international community", said Nicolas Michel, Under Secretary-General in the Office of Legal Affairs. The purpose of establishing an international tribunal in Cambodia is to condemn the former Khmer Rouge leaders for committing genocide during their rule from 1975 to 1979; killed nearly a quarter of the population at the time. Indeed, individual responsibility of the Khmer Rouge for crimes committed has never been established in a fair trial.

In this case, the court established in Cambodia or the Extraordinary Chambers were not created in the heart of a humanitarian crisis. They were not a threat to peace and international security when compared to other international courts. The events continued even after 30 years. These bodies are part of this extraordinary new generation of internationalized criminal courts such as Kosovo, Sierra Leone, and East Timor. Why and how did Cambodia decide to establish an internationalized criminal court? We will study the hybrid character of this new court.
